What was your longest render?Do you have a renderfarm?
>>665701>longest render2hrs a frame but the shot only lasted 3 seconds. I probably could have got it down to 30 mins if I tried optimising it though.>RenderfarmI have a second hand dual xeon workstation that is used for rendering.
>>665711>2hrs a frame but the shot only lasted 3 seconds.my was an hour and it was 8 seconds but it also was only 2 samples.
>>665701Still: about 6 hours, 8k Res and lots of maps.Animation: only 1h, if something takes longer I spend time fixing it.
>>665773What are your PC specs?
>>665777This was at work, I don't have the specs on hand
I once used Kerkythea to render a Sketchup project into several minutes worth of FullHD animation.At the time I used three laptops (two of which were a bit old and not in use anymore) and between them they spent around 150 hours.After a while we needed to do some changes to the animation, but I wasn't going to spend 150 machine hours on my slow computers again...Looked into cloud computing, discovered Amazon offered virtual machines and set up a pretty good one (understatement of the year), installed Kerkythea on it and rendered the whole animation again in just 15 hours. Cost me a few bucks but it was worth it for the speed gains.That's the closest I've ever been to using a rendering farm, but it did cut my rendering time down by 90% so I was happy.Yeah yeah I know ... I need to move on from Sketchup and learn another software. Maybe someday!
>>665701>What was your longest render?Usually pictures on my machine (a rather standard Acer machine with 2GB V-Ram, 12GB Physical Memory) are around an hour-hour and a half depending on requirements. Been meaning to upgrade it a bit to address that issue, but I don't know where to start (like if i can get my machine to run an actual graphics card or if I should focus on expanding my physical ram first).>Do you have a renderfarm?If I did, I wouldn't be complaining. There are online ones I'll use, like Renderstreet, but those are limited after a point in regards to funds.
>>665701Sauce?Looks extremely similar to that opening scene in Spirited Away
>>66570122 hours, My PC literally! crashed at the end of the last render.I thought i had lost everything but after reboot had it all.whew...
>>666063How many frames/seconds?What did you try to render?Specs?
